Thanks, that's what I thought on both questions, but I wasn't sure.
I also checed out the bonding documentation in regards to the second question.
What confused me there was what ip address do you assign to the bond0 interface?
I'm assuming here to have 2 ip addresses, and wasn't sure if I have to configure both eth interfaces,
or if I just configure the bond0 enterface with one of the ip addresses.
